Harmonia Macrocosmica, by Andreas Cellarius, was first printed in 1660. The University of Utah copy is from the 1661 edition. Along with accompanying text in Latin, Harmonia contains double-folio hand-painted color plates depicting cosmographic theories of astronomers such as Aratus (315 bce – 240 bce), Ptolemy (90 – 168), Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), and others.
